84pointsE. B. Foote 2000 Merlot (Columbia Valley (WA))

With intense cedary aromas along with hints of campfire and Christmas spices, this rock-solid, tannic Merlot shows more wood notes than pure fruit. The palate has ample berry and cherry flavors, but also a strong dose of penetrating oak, as indicated before. And on the finish that wood turns sweet: you get a strong taste of marshmallow and vanilla. Michael Schachner
